Reviewed Grown Up Mac and Cheese
"The reviewer two down before me, mkb459, requested that future reviewers rate the recipe 100% as written. While I see the point in that they want to be able to accurately judge the recipe, there are plenty of cooks on this site who use recipes as a starting point for their own personalization, and I think this too is just fine. It's a bit restri"
Reviewed Is It Really Better Than Sex? Cake
"Super good and very easy. Although I changed a few things here and there. I changed the presentation into a layer cake, filling the cake with a thick layer of custard and the pineapple mixture then topped cake with the whipped cream and toasted coconut flakes. I also used homemade pastry cream instead of boxed pudding. It only takes 10 minutes"
My mum is a truly gourmet cook, and she baked all of our bread, made countless preserves, jams and jellies, and cooked sophisticated, wholesome meals for us every day of the week. She started me "cooking", or rather, helping at age 3, and I knew how to hold a chef's knife before I was in kindergarten. And unlike the dismal obesity-in-training state of kid's food today, my brother, sister and I developed adventuresome palates at an early age that translated into a love of good, healthy food later in life.
Mum had a 1/4 acre garden about 1/2 devoted to stocking our larder. I didn't know what a supermarket tomato was like until I stayed over at a friend's house. Since I live in San Francisco with no room at all for a garden, I love my weekly visit to SF's amazing Heart of the City Farmer's Market; it more than makes up for my lack of gardening space.
Although I prefer the much cheaper and more ethnically diverse Heart of the City Farmer's Market to the way pricier, trendier and more publicized Ferry Building Farmer's Market, The Ferry Building itself is like a playground for cooks and a great asset to our city's reputation as a temple of gastronomy. If you've not been, I strongly encourage you to set aside an entire afternoon to experience the Ferry Building on your next visit to our fair City by the Bay.
